A poor beast that is going homeward, goes cheerfully!
(Charles Spurgeon, "Flowers from a Puritan's Garden" 1883)
A poor beast that is going homeward, goes cheerfully! See how the horse pricks up his ears and quickens his pace when you turn his head to his stable. Even the dull donkey does the same.
Much more then should Christians feel the attractions of their heavenly home!
Courage, brothers and sisters; we, too, are homeward bound! Every hour brings us nearer to the many mansions! Our way is toward the Father's house on high, therefore let us rejoice at every step we take!
"Do not let your hearts be troubled. In my Father's house are many mansions. I am going there to prepare a place for you!" John 14:1-2
